June 22–25, 2016

Moscone West, San Francisco, CA


Stem cell state and fate are controlled by the complex interplay of the genomic state and microenvironment. However, methods that look at the average of many cells cannot discern the dynamics of each cell in the stem cell transition. Single-cell biology enables deeper, more precise insights into the drivers of pluripotency, differentiation and self-renewal.

By integrating single-cell genomics, transcriptomics, epigenetics and proteomics, you now have access to a complete suite of single-cell biology applications. Our simple and complete solutions enable you to optimize stem cell culture conditions, identify the genes, signatures and characteristics of stem cell state and discover new cell states and sub-populations for further exploration. Now you can define and manipulate cell and disease-based models to explore regulatory mechanisms and treatment paradigms with with ease and precision.

Join Fluidigm at ISSCR 2016 and learn how you can discover what makes every stem cell unique from the inside out.

Visit us at Booth 1637 to learn more.

Join us at the Innovation Showcase

Rediscover stem cell biology at single-cell resolution

Using single-cell transcriptome analysis, stem cell biologists uncovered novel cell types that revolutionized our understanding of cell states, fate decisions and response to stimuli. Now, the stem cell community is exploring the transcriptome, epigenome and proteome of individual cells to gain new insight into the biological mechanisms that drive self-renewal, pluripotency and differentiation, and to discover critical signatures of disease progression and cell lineage.

In this workshop, hear from leading stem cell researchers about their latest discoveries using our comprehensive suite of single-cell technologies, and learn new approaches to power your next breakthrough.

Thursday, June 23
11:30 am–12:30 pm
Level 2, Rooms 2014/2016/2018

Lunch will be provided.
